MLB: Top 5 Sellers at 2021 Trade Deadline

The 2021 MLB season has been fun to watch. Whether it’s the no-hitters or the all young guns belting homers, this has been highly entertaining. But, there are some teams going through a rough period.

We know teams like the Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, and Atlanta Braves could be buyers even though they probably won’t go trade for a bunch of guys or acquire well-known talent.

Here are the top-5 sellers as the trade deadline approaches.

Minnesota Twins

Out of all the bottom dwellers in baseball, the Twins might have the most potential trade candidates.

Nelson Cruz, Josh Donaldson, Michael Pineda, and J.A. Happ could all get shipped out of town at the deadline.

Jose Berrios could net a strong return in a trade also.

It’s hard to believe the Twins are in this position, but they haven’t played very well and Miguel Sano is a .178 hitter, which doesn’t help matters.

Washington Nationals

The Nats are in fourth place in the NL East and are having another disappointing season.

Kyle Schwarber and Josh Bell could be nice trade pieces. It also would be interesting to see if Washington deals Jon Lester or ace Max Scherzer.

If a team is desperate enough for some pitching, then Scherzer definitely could be up for grabs.

I wasn’t expecting much from the Nats this season. I mean it’s not like they were going to spend much money after winning a World Series in 2019.

Miami Marlins

The NL East is starting to sort itself out with the cream rising to the top.

The Fish are in last place in the division and will need to consider some trades.

Jesus Aguilar, Adam Duvall, and Miguel Rojas stand out. Starling Marte has played good baseball this season and gives teams a player who can be in all outfield spots.

Yimi Garcia and Dylan Floro would add to a club’s bullpen mix. Both arms played for the Los Angeles Dodgers in recent memory.

Arizona Diamondbacks

The D-backs have been in last place in the NL West and it only makes sense for them to trade players.

Eduardo Escobar, Kole Calhoun, and Asdrubal Cabrera would be nice additions to a team’s lineup.

Joakim Soria and Stephen Vogt also should be available.

If teams have to absorb the contracts for all these players, they would not have to worry since their deals are really cheap.

Pittsburgh Pirates

The Buccos are a really bad team, but they have some arms that could be available at the MLB Trade Deadline.

Richard Rodriguez, Chris Stratton, Kyle Crick, and Chasen Shreve could all be dealt at the trade deadline.

I wouldn’t be shocked if the Bucs also traded Bryan Reynolds, Adam Frazier, or Jacob Stallings.

The Buccos were last on this list, because I felt the Nats, Marlins, D-backs, and Twins had better and more appealing big league talent available.
